It's been years since I've played Counter-Strike – a fact I was reminded of with every death – but it took very little time for me to feel at home with CS:GO. The visual tweaks and new modes are welcome additions, and Valve has pulled off a rare feat by creating a game that's both inviting to newcomers and wholly respectful to the original fanbase. And with plenty of user-made (i.e. mods) content surely on the way, I have a feeling the Counter-Strike name will remain as sterling as ever in the years ahead.
Cheat Happens
You kind of have to know what you're getting before you even boot up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. If you're looking for a Call of Duty style shooter where you can ease your way in and get lucky from time to time, look elsewhere -- but if you're in the market for a shooter that takes to master and will put you through the ringer--Global Offensive is for you. Valve has another winner on their hands; even if it's not all that new.

CS:GO ist für mich eine würdige, moderne Neuauflage eines zeitlosen Klassikers, der in Details nicht an das große Original herankommt. Viele dieser Kritikpunkte sind dabei sicherlich mit nostalgisch verklärter Sturheit zu erklären, andere kann Valve sicherlich mit Patches beheben. Ob sich der Shooter auf Wettkampfniveau durchsetzen kann, bleibt abzuwarten. In die Herzen der Spieler hat es CS:GO definitiv schon geschafft: Etwa 36.000 Menschen spielen täglich über Steam, nur knapp überflügelt von CS:Source (40.000) und dem allmächtigen CS 1.6 (50.000).

Wenn mir bei Counter-Strike schon immer eines egal war, dann die Optik. Hübsche Grafik kann einfach nicht mit dem Gefühl konkurrieren, einen selbstgefälligen AWP-Schützen über die halbe Karte mit der Ak 47 auszuknipsen. Doch bevor mir das in Global Offensive mit der gewohnten Lässigkeit gelingt, werde ich wohl noch die eine oder andere Runde mehr spielen müssen. Müssen! Das klingt ja wie eine Strafe! Ist es aber nicht. Das ist Counter-Strike!
Playing CS:GO reminded me just how much many of the new shooter features out there -- the Air Strikes, the perks, the tanks -- can help make up for a lack of core FPS skills. There's no faking it here, and if you really want to get right down to it and find out just how good of an online gunslinger you are, the crucible of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a great place to do it.
În concluzie, ce primești pentru cei 10 euro prin SMS? Un titlu gândit pentru jucătorii casual, dar care nu-i alungă pe cei care vor să se implice mai serios în e-sport. Primești posibilitatea de a face parte dintr-o comunitate cu echipe legendare și jucători care au scris istoria e-sportului. Iar Counter-Strike este o experiență fantastică dacă îți găsești patru prieteni cu care să lupți în turnee. Evident, dacă ești fan Battlefield sau Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive nu o să te convingă să schimbi tabăra prin grafică sau sunet, dar în același timp, experiența Counter-Strike nu se limitează doar la aceste elemente.
The Escapist
If you've never played Counter-Strike before, Global Offensive is an excellent intro to the series, but veterans may feel underwhelmed at the lack of new content

Har du någon gång knäppt terrorister i Counter-Strike förut så vet du exakt vad som väntar dig här. Det är spelet som du antingen redan älskar eller redan hatar, men skulle du ingå i skaran som aldrig tidigare varit på Valves terroristjakt förut har det nog aldrig varit mer lägligt att börja än nu. Vi snackar om otaliga timmars intensivt pang-pang som fortfarande kan imponera trots 12 år på nacken. På många sätt är det en frisk fläkt från de moderna militärskjutarna, och prislappen är helt rätt.
